Notable Basketball Prospects to Attend Wake Forest vs. Duke Game

Wake Forest is hosting a number of talented prospects on Saturday.

NCAA Basketball: Wake Forest at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Wake Forest basketball team will be playing in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday afternoon against the Duke Blue Devils. Part of the capacity crowd will be 13 total basketball prospects from the high school classes of 2018, 2019, and 2020, respectively. Evan Daniels of is reporting that the following players will be in attendance:

The prize of this group of visitors is Jaylen Hoard, who currently attends Wesleyan Christian in High Point, North Carolina. Hoard is originally from France and was exceptional during this summer’s FIBA u17 World Championships, as he averaged 22.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. He’s a 5-star prospect and it goes without saying that he’d be a phenomenal addition to the Wake basketball program. Certainly the Shah Basketball Complex can’t hurt Wake’s chances.

Aaron Wiggins, a teammate of Hoard, has seen his stock rise since transferring to Wesleyan, and has since picked up offers from Arizona and Maryland. The other notable prospects in attendance are Wendell Moore and Josh Nickelberry. The pair are both in the 2019 class and from North Carolina. There’s a long way to go in their recruitments, but Wake putting on a stellar show in front of a sold out crowd could make an outstanding impression.
